NRCF Grants Administration Officer

Allison Henry

Relevant Experience:
Jen graduated from Bath Spa University in the UK with a Bachelor of English Literature and Cultural Studies. She lived and worked in South Korea for 7 years before settling in Australia in 2014. She worked as a teacher in Sydney before moving into vocational education and RTO management.
Jen most recently worked for a NFP as a Scholarship Coordinator, working with young people, community organisations and small businesses in The Clarence Valley to enable disadvantaged youth into vocational education and meaningful employment.

Why I joined:
I have lived and worked in many places across the world and I have not experienced a community as strong as that of the Northern Rivers. The kindness and strength shown, during and after recent disasters has really highlighted that. Community organisations and local charities are at the heart of a strong community. I am delighted to now be working for NRCF, who support and enable community groups to continue their important work.
